Joke stolen from: Training2Laugh

Having immigrated to the United States as an adult, I shall never completely lose my accent. It usually doesn't bother me, but sometimes it does create confusion. Gophers were digging holes in our farmland, and I worried that our horses could break a leg in one of them. I was, therefore, quite interested in an ad I saw in our local paper: A retired serviceman was asking for permission to trap gophers on private land.

After making the arrangements, I decided to check with PACA to make sure trapping gophers was legal. I phoned and explained the situation to the gentleman, and asked if that was legal. There was a moment's silence before the gentleman asked, "Do you live next to the golf course?"

I had no idea what made him think that and answered, "No, I don't."

"Then why," he asked, "would you want to trap golfers?"
